2L summer on resume - Law clerk vs Summer Associate?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Mar 10, 2017 4:00 pm

My 2L summer firm never gives out offers to "summer associates" for the last three years, including my summer class. It's a small boutique law firm.

On my resume, which title would be better - Law clerk vs Summer Associate? The firm used both titles but I am afraid that "summer associate" might indicate that I didn't get an offer from my 2L summer firm, which isn't technically true. Would it be better to state law clerk on my resume, instead?
